The Arizona Center for Civic Leadership at the Flinn Foundation is now accepting applications and recommendation letters through Nov. 12 for the 2019 Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy. Every year, some 25 Arizonans are selected through a highly competitive process to join the statewide network of more than 325 Flinn-Brown Fellows and participate in the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy.
The Academy builds Fellows’ expertise in policy and politics and introduces them to the networks that make things happen in Arizona. The Academy will include 14 sessions at the Flinn Foundation on Fridays and Saturdays in February-May 2019.
Fellows are drawn from the state’s business, agricultural, industry, education, nonprofit, and public sectors—and from many walks of life and perspectives. Participating in the Flinn-Brown Network helps experienced leaders be effective:
- elected officials;
- members of boards and commissions;
- agency and institutional executives;
- policy advisors;
- statewide organization executives; and
- leaders in organizations that affect public policy.
Applications and recommendation letters are due November 12, 2018.
